Singer Bree Harlow’s sultry performance of the song “Missing You” demonstrates the artist’s commitment to her craft. Here, Harlow delivers the song a cappella, creating a haunting air of sadness and longing for the lover she has left behind.
Harlow has always aimed to deliver performances indicative of great singers such as Connie Francis and Rosemary Clooney. She cites great soul singers such as Al Green and Marvin Gay as prime influences, with this performance as strong evidence of that adoration. It is not always easy for a singer as young as Harlow to muster up the heartache and pain needed to make a song like “Missing You” sound as it should. The fact that she can do this while working on her first EP makes the performance all the more special.
Harlow has also stated her adoration for the lyrical styling of Iggy Pop, and some of that influence is evident with “Missing You”. On classics such as “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” Pop showcases a moan of deep longing and regret that resonates with Harlow’s performance. It takes years of practice and dedication to develop such as style, but Harlow has been able to master this in just a short time.
Harlow’s EP is set to be released from Archstone Productions. She will broaden her musical scope on this release, adding in talents of such artists as Frank Agnew of the band Adolescents. Agnew will be playing guitar as Harlow offers a cover of “Paint It Black” by The Rolling Stones.
As a musical performer, Harlow adheres to the stance that the tone of the song is the key, as the ability to create a mood and elicit an emotional reaction is what bonds an artist to the audience. With the help of her father, Harlow is able to keep the structure of the song in tact, thereby creating a perfect performance on “Missing You,” with a delivery that completely immerses the listener in the story that singer is trying to tell while still offering a musically sound composition. It all points to the great potential and bright future of Bree Harlow.
